We gave him a little piece of our mind after the flight. He then had the stupidity to ask if one of us were Navy and thus the reason for the riff. This guy was a total idiot. Letís just say the jumpseat committee knows all about him now. He was also CASS denied so go figure.

So he didn't quite red line your tool meter, huh? Curious what it would have taken

Can you kind of outline for us your thought process that led to you letting him on? Dress code at my carrier is pretty relaxed for a number of reasons, but if I *were* flying for a passenger carrier with any kind of dress code, I could visualize myself going out on a limb a little and maybe looking the other way for someone who was otherwise a decent sort. I really have a tough time seeing myself bending the rules much for a guy who is is a complete douche, and also is that far out of compliance the dress code.

Agreed. The whole thing leaves me scratching my head on why on earth would you let a guy like this think it was okay to act like he did and show up for a jumpseat dressed like that.

Both of us work for SWA and we have an extremely relaxed JS dress code, but military flight suit?! Are you kidding me? Then even worse is the attitude. Yeah.....youíre denied AND Iím turning it in to our JS Committee. YHGTBSM.

That why mobile phones are also great cameras and recorders. No long winded reports to be written.

Wasnít my decision in the right seat and we gave him some slack at first even though he was dressed like a little boy at Halloween. We didnít know about the ops agent interaction and that he was an ass to her until we were half way to DEN. One of the FAs called up and told us what they observed at the gate as they were getting on since we had an FA crew change in LAS. I can assure you that if this info would have been known before we pushed he would have been walking.

Was it CASS denied because your computer system has an amazingly painful way of not processing jumpseaters. All the ALPA carriers did the heavy lifting to get CASS and KCM. Glad you guys get to use what the rest of us paid for. Any chance you could at least try to make your system work?

Apparently we let ALPA guys on, no matter how they dress or act. That okay with you?
